On November 15th, Carolyn Cilley enjoyed a family gathering to remember her son, Lonny Cilley on his birthday.  She greatly appreciated everyone that brought food and shared stories about Lonny.  She really enjoyed a photo book that was prepared for the day.  It really meant a lot to her as she misses Lonny very much.  She thanks all that attended. 

The end of regular deer hunting has come to a close.  However, many dedicated hunters will be enjoying black powder hunting which follows for two weeks.  Last hour of tagging at the Waite General Store, brought another 8- point buck up to the weighing station; total count for the season was forty- one.  Princeton Variety Store’s total count for the season was twenty-six.   Past memories of deer tagged in our area were not unheard of to have totals of 1,000 tagged in one season! Times they are a changing. 

Congratulations to Al Mather, Princeton Baptist Church Pastor, on celebrating his milestone 60th birthday over the weekend.  Reports of 60’s clad party-goers were there to help Al celebrate.  Rumor has it Mike Marshall might have taken the prize and created the most laughter attending in his “love-child” costume.
